History:
Started off as a class A station on 95.3 with the WQIM calls. It played a combination of AC, oldies and recent nostalgia. The station switched to an black contemporary format for a short time before the frequency and power change came. On the first day of the new frequency it changed to rock and has been "The Fox" ever since. The station, in the summer of 2006, applied for a change to their facilities, from a 50kW station at about 476 ft from a Pratville sited tower to one in the city of Montgomery (east) with just 5400 watts at over 1,000 ft.
 
The station's HD broadcasts expanded in the middle of June 2011 with the addition of two simulcasts, Cumulus AMs WMSP and WLWI.  In June 2013 the station announced it had scored Alabama Crimson Tide Football rights.  The market is technically served by WDXX out of Selma, but as a rimshot signal it doesn't cover the Montgomery market well.  WXFX will share coverage with WDXX.  In 2015 the station added a fourth HD signal to relay Contemporary Christian WAY-FM, which itself is being relayed onto translator W272CO in town.
